I bought a Dell Inspiron 2 in 1 FHD laptop, 16 inch, brand new. Initially got a quote from Dell that included the laptop, McAfee protection, Office Home and Student 2021 & their really expensive customer service. By the time I got back to them, prices had increased. Fair enough, so I didn't buy. Then the same sales rep. from - contact center India, called me back telling me they will sell me the computer on the previous quote. I was happy, but I was kind of suspicious, but he assured me all is okay. In the invoice, I got from them after the purchase, the Home and Office was listed as installed, but no price was mentioned. The sales rep I talked to who had given the quote, did not send the price breakdown, just the total amount with this Office version included as well.

I was fine, as long as it is listed as included and the total price is what was quoted to me with this Office Suite included. So, I get the laptop without the Office installed & Customer support spends an hour on my computer and still can't install Office! They have a thing called the Digital Locker where all your software details are stored. Even there, there was no Product key. Dell blamed Microsoft that their digital orders are an issue with some computers. Well, then Dell should have checked that it was installed on my laptop or ensured that the product key was on the Digital Locker. They tell me to give them 24-48 hours to check on this, resolve this issue, and install Office. Really? This coming from a computer company? I mean how long does it take to install Office once you buy it?

If I bought Office online right now, it would take me few minutes to install it with their product key. I realized this was going to be a vicious circle. I decided to return this new laptop. Who knows what more issues I'll have to face. I mean I was ready to start working on my new laptop considering Office was installed. I have returned the laptop, they sent me the return label and everything for FedEx. Now let's wait and see what happens. I will only have satisfaction once all my money is refunded. I don't trust them after what happened and after reading all the reviews here.

I have purchased Dell laptop that too for 60k and it's completely waste of money. Laptop is heating too many time and that too from different parts, sometime adapter is heating, sometime center part of keyboard, left side, right side of keyboard heating too much. Please don't buy Vostro 3510 from Dell. Even bezel is also come out sometime their mechanical design is also not qualitative..

    Bought a laptop and it was defective. Dell sent me replacement twice and all had the same defects. Wasted almost 2 months trying to get this replacement and lost over $800 for taking days off from work for Dell to come collect the laptops. All calls are diverted to India and they don't care about our time spent and the losses we have. The customer support supervisor at Dell (Thomas ** from Bangalore Dell office) was very rude and wanted me to go to Consumer court or take it legally. Dell has the worst customer service. They are not worried about customers. A huge loss for me after being a loyal customer to Dell for 22 years.

    We bought this laptop just two months ago from Amazon and it has barely been used, but it has started to lag, the mouse it does not work, the software does not get close and at times it does not even turn on unless you plug in. I have raised ticket with Dell center yesterday but have receive no response or update. I am greatly disappointed with dell services and product. So please don't buy this product unless you want to waste your money.

    I had purchased a Laptop Inspiron i5 3000 in the month of May, and raised a issue of heating laptop with Dell team on the next day of my purchase. From 6 months, whenever I had a conversation with the team, they are asking me to perform repeated diagnostic test and wasting my 4-5 hours in a day and eventually that diagnostic test is having zero result. They had also changed my laptop parts twice but still issue did not got resolve. At the end, I got frustrated and asked them to change the laptop, Because they had given me a faulty piece, that is not working properly since the day of my purchase. Their team refuse to do so, giving me a reason system has cross return period...

    Dell team making fool of their consumer, for the name sake they are mentioning they are resolving the issue taking more than six month to resolve it, and then refuse to change the laptop mentioning reason we have crossed return period. Now I am facing additional issue along with heating. Worst experience with Dell, never going to recommend any one for the Dell nor going to purchase it again.

    Original review: Nov. 1, 2022

    I bought the computer last year and realized that I could not use it until the docking station arrived. The equipment was purchased in September and it took 3 months to receive all the components (computer arrived late Sept, monitors arrived early Nov, docking station not until late Nov/early Dec). The battery sent with the computer did not fit any port on the computer itself. I was so disgusted I put the computer away intending to return it. Now the warranty expired and I am finally using it. I called to explain the situation to customer service. I want to renew the warranty but have the one year go until late November when I could charge up the computer. I talked to six people and kept getting bounced around between technical, sales, customer care, and warranty. Wrote on their online contact box and still no contact. I have been a Dell customer for the last 20 years, but this is probably the last computer I buy from this company.

    I sent my laptop into Dell less than a year after I bought it. It wouldn't turn on. They sent it back after the warranty had expired. It still wouldn't turn on. Now, 90 days later, they refuse to fix it. They refuse to give me a phone number in the United States. This company is trash and its products are trash. Hey, Dell! Give me a call sometime - from your US department and not from India. I'd love to tell you how I will NEVER EVER buy another computer from your trash company ever again. #MadeinIndia #DellSucks #DellMakesIndiaGreatAgain.

    For two days, I have tried to purchase an Alienware laptop, and a Netgear router for my daughter as a reward she earned. I have not been lied to misled and disrespected as much as I was by Dowell in the past 12 hours of dealing with them. They charged my Visa debit card for $2756.04, and then they charged my MasterCard for $2756.04. They deny that they charged my debit card even though I bank official phone them provided them with the transaction number provided them with a picture of the fee. But because she wanted an Alienware I persisted and did order one with the full knowledge that it had to be here before the 21st, I was promised confirmed that it would be.

    A few hours later I got a sheep’s phone call from one of the attendance telling me he had sent me the confirmation. I asked if it was the same confirmation that he had given me for hours earlier, and all I got was a bunch of mumbling. When I checked the latest confirmation, they had switched the delivery date from the 21st to the 24th and try to sneak it by me. I cannot believe that dell and Alienware has deteriorated to such deplorable treatment of customers and they need to steal their money so anyone reading this please take heed. This is not the company that Michael Dell built it on.

    Friends, please please please do not buy Dell Alienware Laptop. In my laptop it's throwing blue screen error 2-3 times in a day. Once it throw error it automatically restart and you lose all your work because of sudden restart. I approached Dell Support Centre but no one is able to solve this issue. All the time they are giving different tips but they can not solve the issue. As you know these laptops are costly so do not waste your money. They are making fool you. They know very well that their hardware parts, Graphics, Memory, Processor and its Drivers are not match perfectly. So they are not able to solve the problems. Don't be fool.
